...An initial phase of inquiry into expertise in science and its acquisition sought to identify differences between expert and novice reasoning (

...Since problem representations were one of the crucial aspects of problem solving (Larkin,
1983
), we could perhaps infer that problem solving was to a certain extent determined by the formation of one's conceptual models...

The role of model building in problem solving and conceptual change
...Second, a significant number of studies that instructionally emphasize (among other things) either the use of diagrams in general or force diagrams, in particular, in the solution process have demonstrated significant success in improving student problemsolving in mechanics (Clement, 1993; Heller & Reif, 1984; Huffman, 1997;
Larkin, 1983;
Savinainen, Scott, & Viiri, 2005; Van Heuvelen, 1991; Ward & Sweller, 1990)...

...But in another study, Larkin (
